Artist Jianpeng Sun Creates Fantastic Sand Art of Dwayne Johnson

Jianpeng Sun is an artist from Asia that uses sand to create art in small glass balls. He usually uses black, grey and white sand to create portraits, which end up looking like the real thing! In this case, he made a sand model of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s face. It took him around 5 hours to do it and to do it he needed to use a small pipette, funnel or something similar so he could layer the sand properly.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is an American actor and former WWE wrestler. He is known for his many movies like “Skyscraper”, the Fast and Furious franchise and many more. As far as WWE goes he is known as “The Rock” there right now, but he’s had many other names over the years.

The Worst Move In The History of WWE-Fight Undertaker VS Brock Lesnar

/

If you ever heard for World Wrestling Entertainment or shorter WWE, you know there are several legends that have been or are still members of this American company. Therefore, it is almost impossible that you have not heard of perhaps the biggest legend, the wrestler called Undertaker.

He is an athlete who has been part of the WWE for more than two decades and that places him among the wrestlers who are the longest on the scene. He has scored numerous records in his career and is the seven-times winner of the world champion title. Also, he is an athlete who has the longest series of invincibility with 21 consecutive victories on the main spectacle by WWE, WrestleMania. His incredible streak ended at WrestleMania 30 when he was defeated by Brock Lesnar. Also, this was his first defeat in WrestleMania since the beginning of his successful career. However, many think that this fight between Undertaker and Brock Lesnar is definitely the worst move in WWE history.

Was the fight really a wrong decision?

The fight between Undertaker and Lesnar is organized on the grand jubilee, the 30th anniversary of WrestleMania. Brock Lesnar was a conqueror when two wrestlers met in the ring, but Undertaker’s streak was incredible and maybe it should not have ended in this way.

Would it be better if Undertaker remained unbeatable?

Certainly, Undertaker is a legend of WWE and is one of the main reasons that a large number of fans watched WrestleMania. Simply, his streak was a great challenge for all other professional wrestlers because the victory against the legend was a great honor for the winner. Therefore, the streak was a legacy that should not have been broken.

Why is the fight between Undertaker and Brock Lesnar the worst move?

Surely, this is the worst move for many reasons. First of all, the big series was interrupted and this was disappointed by many fans around the world. However, although everyone expected that Undertaker would retire after a defeat, he also appeared on WrestleMania 31 where he recorded another victory. So, the return to the ring is another reason why this fight was a big mistake of WWE.

WWE star Paige says that Dwayne Johnson changed her life in five minutes

“I’m 26 and I have a biopic! What the hell is life right now, it’s crazy!” says WWE star Paige, still not quite sure what has happened.

Fighting with My Family is the upcoming movie about her life, and Paige is more than happy about it. Born as Saraya-Jade Bevis in a wrestling family from Norfolk, England, she has been wrestling for half her life now, starting when she was 13. It is hard to believe that her career almost never happened, as she was afraid to enter the ring at one time.

“I loved wrestling so much, I was such a huge fan of it, but I was scared to get into the ring. It was terrifying to me, I was 12 years old. But when I turned 13, I got in the ring and then I was like, ‘Oh, now I’m hooked! Can’t get away from it now’. I just loved it so much,” she explains.

Her brother Zak shared her passion and two of them attended the audition for WWE training program. Paige made it, while Zack didn’t make the cut. The story picked up interest from a local documentary maker, who made a short film about the family. As luck would have it, Dwayne Johnson was in London, filming Fast and The Furious and saw the documentary. Immediately, he knew he can turn it into a movie. He found Paige and asked her permission to do it, a conversation that left her in tears. She later said that it was a “life-changing” experience for her:

“He texted me first ’cause we were in the same building for WrestleMania in 2014… and he was like, ‘Hey, it’s DJ. I would love to talk to you at some point,’ and I didn’t know he had a nickname, right — I didn’t realize DJ was short for Dwayne Johnson. So I’m like, ‘Who the hell is DJ? And why the hell is he texting my phone? Whose number is this? They want to see me, what the hell,’ and Dean Malenko, who was my mentor, was like, ‘That’s Dwayne Johnson, you idiot!”

“He said he’d watched the documentary and how he loved it and it just reminded him of his family and he just loved our story and wanted to do a movie on it. So, just within like two minutes of talking to me it was like, ‘You just changed my life,’ and then he was like, ‘Oh and tomorrow you’re going to be debuting in the Diva’s Championship,’ and I just remember crying my eyes out,” Paige remembers her promotion to WWE main event. “I was like, ‘Oh my god — five minutes of sitting down with you and talking to you and you’ve told me two things that are going to change my life forever’.”

Johnson hired Stephen Merchant to write and direct the movie, to add some comic relief to a family drama and action of the story. Paige was happy to leave everything to them: “When it came down to it, I literally left everything in Stephen and Dwayne’s hands — I trust them. They’re wonderful people, they’re geniuses and I’m like ‘they’ve got it covered’. So I was never worried about it.”

The buzz about the first ever WWE biopic was soon eclipsed by an even bigger WWE story, that Netflix is making a movie about the life of superstar Hulk Hogan, one of the people who helped establish the sport’s popularity in the 1980s. The role of the Hulkster will be played by another superstar, Australian Chris Hemsworth, much to Paige’s delight.

“I saw that and I was like, ‘Damn Hulk Hogan, stealing my thunder’,” she laughs before adding: “Hulk Hogan is a good friend of mine and I think he’s an incredible human too, and he’s very lucky to have Chris Hemsworth playing him! That guy is not an ugly guy! He’s OK to look at. So, I’m happy for him and I think it’s gonna be huge.”

She did have some advice for Thor, though, based on her experience as the two-time champion: “I would just say [to Chris], just tuck your chin when you’re wrestling, learn from me — it hurts.”

Paige is now retired from pro wrestling, due to a serious neck injury she suffered in the ring. She is already planning her next chapter, which reveals that behind that tough exterior there is a gentle heart: “[If I wasn’t a wrestler] I would have been a vet or a zoologist — I love animals so much. That was my dream later on in life, when I was supposed to retire, not at 26 but a little later — I wanted to have a lot of lands so I can have an animal reserve or a humane society of my own, so I can just rescue animals.”

When Dwayne was filming in London in 2012 the movie Fast and Furious 6 he had troubles with sleeping. During the sleepless nights, he watched a non-fiction movie called The Wrestlers: Fighting with My Family.

The story followed Saraya Bevis, stage name Paige, a very young woman in wrestler world, and her specific, disgraceful family, which is obsessed with wrestling.

“It had something special that resonated with me, and I thought it could be turned into a really compelling movie, “ Rock explained.
In a short time of period, Dwayne Johnson started this project in his company Seven Bucks Production.

Dwayne Johnson Upsets Fans After Celebrating Having a Tank Named After Him

We all know how popular Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is, but the latest backlash he got will not do him any good. Some of his fans are really upset, and they really need to calm the hell down.
The Rock is a real action icon and that’s why the Blackhawk Squadron 1st Armored Division, which is based in Fort Bliss, decided to name one of their tanks after him. No one can argue why this was done so because he is a kind of a human tank himself. This completely makes sense!

However, what made fans extremely annoyed is the fact that he recognized this act as a special thing and even dedicated one little Instagram post to it. He posted a photo of the tank and captured it:
‘I’m sending a salute of respect & gratitude to the Blackhawk Squadron ?? 1st Armored Division for the honor of naming their tank (the most advanced in the world) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Heavy-duty, badass, se*y AF and built to take care of business ? — but most importantly, thank you all for your service. Grateful to the bone. #IronSoldiers #BlackhawkSquadron #1stArmouredDivision #FortBliss #TheDRJ #BloodSweatRespect’
Many of us would definitely consider this as a normal reaction, but not everyone thought that he should celebrate this act. So, plenty of The Rock’s fans weren’t down with the honor. Hence, Dwayne got plenty of backlashes. Here is some of the feedback from his fans:
“Having a death machine named after [you] seems cool until it’s used against beings that don’t truly deserve it.”

“I think they should name a few nukes after you and really get you excited. Maybe they will make a new gun modeled and named after you that can one day be used against innocents. Or maybe just the bullets. Gosh, so many death machines out there, you must be stoked.”

“Wow … getting your name on a killing machine.”

“Those poor people in some random oil-rich country ain’t gonna know what’s hit ’em.”

“You’re obviously not stupid to know what you are representing or what this machine would do and to who — unfollow!”

“How are you OK with people getting killed with your name?”
“Not sure having a destructive weapon named after you is such a great honor.”

“You were one of my favorite actors. So disappointed now seeing this. We keep making [these] machines to kill people and you are proud one of them has your name … wow.”

You must be thinking that these people need to calm the hell down. No one wants war and there is nothing wrong with naming a tank after the ex-WWE star and action icon. Nevertheless, The Rock hasn’t responded to the backlash and it’s probably for the best. Soon there will be a new controversy about someone else, so it’s better if he just lets it slide.

The Greatest WWE Legends According to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

/

Dwayne Johnson was looking back on the 17th anniversary WrestleMania 18 match. His dream match was with Hulk Hogan, whom he won and became WWE hero. According to the Rock, the three people who are the greatest ever WWE legends are Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. He also believes that these three professional wrestlers have paved the way for him.

He said that he was able to become a WWE hero only because of The Immortal One, the WWE Hall of Famers Flair and Austin. They are the ones who saw that there is something special in Dwayne and gave him a chance. He believes that that dream match would have never been possible if it wasn’t for those three legends.

The Rock was a 10-time world champion and went on to become one of the biggest and highest paid celebrities in Hollywood. While he was reminiscing about that event, which happened 17 years ago, he shared a post on Instagram, which he captioned by saying:
‘Torch passed. Grateful. This past weekend @WWE celebrated the 17th anniversary of what was billed as “ICON vs ICON” to determine who would go down in @WWE history as THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME. It was yours truly, VS The Immortal Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania. What made this match so special was that there was no Heavyweight Championship on the line. Just two men. Just two careers.

And 85,000+ of the most insane ELECTRIC crowd I have ever had the privilege to perform in front of. It was almost as if every single person that night in the Toronto SkyDome made up their mind that they would give every ounce of energy they had because they knew this match was only going to be seen once in a lifetime. My friend and childhood hero, Hulk Hogan passed the torch to me on this historic night which decreed me becoming “THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME”, but the truth is – to be – the GOAT are the three men below who paved the way for me and so many others in pro wrestling. @hulkhogan, @ricflairnatureboy, @steveaustinbsr.

I just worked very hard, connected with the audience and caught a break. These GOATS were good enough to recognize I had something to offer and graciously passed the torch. Grateful.’
Even though The Rock is a very successful actor with plenty of projects going on, he hasn’t forgotten about his WWE career and the moment when he got the torch passed on by Hogan. Dwayne Johnson also stated that he would love to return to the ring one day. And we would all definitely love that too!

Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’ Reached Out to WWE’s Roman Reigns When He Heard That He Went into Remission

We all know that Dwayne Johnson is a sweetheart. And he proved that to us once again when he reached out to Roman Reigns when he heard that he went into remission.

Roman Reigns announced earlier this week that he has good news, his cancer had gone into remission. He posted on his social ‘We hit a home run’ and ‘The good news is, I’m in remission Y’all!’.

He also shared that he can’t wait for him to return to the ring. He said that he watched the announcement video over and over again and that he is so happy for him and his family.

It’s been 10 years after the initial diagnosis of Roman Reigns leukemia. But only in October, he was forced to give up his WWE Universal Championship because his leukemia had returned. He tearfully went to the ring to announce the crowd that he can’t fulfill his role and that he now must fight that awful disease.

 

But now that he is in remission, we can’t wait to see what he does next and we are also so happy that he is on a path of recovery.
